The Prime Brokerage Industrial Placement Internship Program is aimed at undergraduates who are completing a four-year degree with a year out in industry as a requirement for their degree. The one-year internship, which is based in London and begins in June, offers you the opportunity to learn about a variety of product areas within Prime Brokerage, while providing a clear understanding of how the Sales & Trading division operates as a whole. Following an initial period of training and induction, you will be assigned to a particular team where you will spend the remainder of your placement. Interns are treated as full-time members of the team and work alongside experienced professionals at all levels.
Prime Brokerage offers an array of services to hedge fund clients, while acting as a portal to the broader firm. Services include managing client relationships, providing hedge fund financing, acting as a custodian of assets and lending securities for short positions. The wider Prime Brokerage Division also includes specific product desks collectively known as Derivative Structured Products and the pricing and profitability of the business is overseen by a dedicated Prime Brokerage Finance Team
All new Industrial Placement Interns participate in an orientation programme covering the Firm's businesses, the transition from an academic setting to a corporate environment and the chance to establish a network throughout the Firm globally. Interns then attend divisional training where they learn the core skills required to be successful on the job. The curriculum focuses on the Sales & Trading business and the various products, processes and systems required to be successful in the role. In addition, all Interns learn and network with peers, mentors and managers through group projects and other organised events
